These are unforgiving moments where the need to say yes to the future imposes itself. The book opens with a turn of the century story as a family abandons its Quebec farm for the mills of les Etats. The marital infidelity of the title story is an unforgiven lapse that taints the family into the third and fourth generation. In the closing story of generational alienation, the loss of language and culture at last prove too great and cause the fabric of the once close-knit family to unravel. Denis Ledoux was born in Lewiston, Maine and now lives in Lisbon Falls, a mile from where he grew up. "As a writer, I write about my world-the one I know best, that of the Franco-Americans."
